Ellen Answers Some Tinnitus Remedy Questions[imwb_socialbuzz] By John On November 24, 2009 Under T-Gone Tinnitus
You may or may not remember speaking with me approx 2 months ago by phone. At that time I had orderd your T -gone remedy for Cochlear damage. The shipment arrived at the house shortly thereafter and I began to take it immediately. After about 2-3 weeks it apeared that my Tinitus was getting worse so I stopped taking the remedy.
My question to you is this, have you ever run into a problem before with your remedy aggravating tinitus symptoms?
Many people do experience an “aggravation” or worsening of the tinnitus symptoms once they start taking the homeopathic tinnitus treatments.
This can occur as a result of :
1] Your are stressed or anxious about starting a new treatment that you are not sure about. Stress and anxiety do certainly cause the levels of tinnitus to become louder. Once you settle down and stop worrying about actually taking the remedies, and if they are going to work, and simply focus on getting better, the tinnitus levels will recede and actually start reducing.
2] The remedies are starting to work and what you are experiencing is actually know in homeopathic terms as “an aggravation”. This often occurs in homeopathic treatments and is always a good sign and is an indication the you are taking the correct to treat your condition.
- In either case my advice is to have patience and persistence with you tinnitus, keep on taking the remedies and be positive. Remember I took them for a period of 8 months, all in all.
The increased ringing I detected may or may not have been caused from this and I don’t want to stop taking your remedy if the later is the case. To put it mildly I would do just about anything to lessen my Tinitus symptoms.
A bit of history here for you to digest.
I first noticed ringing at a very young age (10 or so). My Dad was involved with heavy equipment, chain saws etc. and I was with him most of my spare time from boyhood. Naturally, back in those days ear protection was not a consideration. I grew up in a Country setting and all my friends were into shooting high powered rifles also. This is where my Tinitus problems originated from.
At the age of 16 I tried smoking Marajuana. Thinking back now, I have no idea what was in the grass I had smoked as it was purchased from a local person in town. After about the 6th time of experiencing this new found pastime the slight ringing I had present went from a 2-3 on the dial to about an 8-9. It totally messed me up. I have never touched any type of street drug since except what was prescribed by the doctor. What I experienced from my last little encounter with grass changed my life. I could no longer tolerate noise to any great degree and now had a serious constant noise in my head to deal with. It was a real wake up call with respect to the fact I was not the invincible young man I thought myself to be.
Smoking the marijuana almost certainly acted as a trigger for your tinnitus. Perhaps it was just the stress of smoking it in the first place, but if that did not trigger it, something certainly would have.
The important thing to understand is the your tinnitus was caused from exposure to loud noises, which most likely caused cochlea damage. When this happens high frequency hearing loss and tinnitus is common.
It was then I found out Tinitus was incurable by my Doctor. To say I was devistated would be an understatement. I ended taking Vallium at his urging which did nothing but make me into a walking Zoombie. His idea of treatment was masking it rather than trying to minimizse it. After several months of taking Vallium daily I managed to kick this medical fiasco and get through my days without assistance. Since then I have tried acu puncture, hypnosis, ear candling, a Choirorprator and several other prescription drugs designed to possibly assist in controlling Tinitus. Hypnosis was the only thing somewhat of a help.
I began to limit my noise exposure since that “bad time” at the age of 16 and use hearing protection whenever nesessary. I also began to educate myself somewhat on the problem. The more I learned the less hope I had of ever living a life without Tinitus. I have tried to maintain myself in good physical shape and excercised regularily most of my life so as to live it to the best and fullest standard possible. At the age of 35 I was subject to an industrial accident during which a co worker inadvertantly released a high pressure air hose next to my head. The noise was extreme and my right ear had blood vessels ruptured in behind the eardrum. To make a long story short the Tinitus got worse again.
Here I am now 48 years of age and have suffered from Tinitus most of my life. Several months ago, when arriving at my home airport from work I was subject to yet another damaging encounter with noise. This time I had just cleared Immigration and walked into the lobby to meet my wife and a jackhammer kicks into action in the area. They were doing upgrades at the airport. The noise was extreme and I got out of there as soon as possible. It was not a long time exposure but it increased my Tinitus once again. (mainly in my right ear) It was after this time that I got into contact with you.
Often sudden exposure to loud noise can cause damage and this could most certainly result in a higher intensity of the levels of your tinnitus.
This last little episode has done me harm and I really don’t know for sure if your remedy has aggravated the problem…. or if it is just because I am still suffering the new effects of the noise exposure at the airport. I would like to think your remedy would not cause the problem to worsen but need your advice on this. It would be a shame to stop taking this if there is a chance it may help me over a period of time. Please understand am super worried about doing ANYTHING that will make my problem worse.
As you are well aware this is a difficult way to live. I have a wife and 21 year old son, both of who I love dearly. If it were not for them, my Dad and Religous views suicide would look much more appealing than dealing with this. I only tell you this to give you a clear perspective on my thoughts.
I really know how you feel! I went through much the same sort of traumatic time.
- All I can tell you that you CAN get through this, but it will take patience, persistence and a positive attitude on your part. I can honestly say that these days tinnitus is no longer a factor in my life!
- This is not to say I no longer have tinnitus, just that it no longer bothers me. I simply no longer conscious of it every moment of the day and night.
- So please do not give up! You sound as if you have a lot to live for!
